Games night...

Two new ones played last night at the University of Waterloo...

Quebec, Ystari Games

The gorgeous colours of Quebec
I finally got a copy of Quebec, designed by Philippe Beaudoin and Pierre Poissant-Marquis, which was first described to me by one of the designers at Origins last year. And it's good. Really good. Really, REALLY good. Smart, fast-moving, dynamic, tricky, original, so many words I could use. Definitely on the heavier side but very fast-paced and the decisions are limited so it trucks along fairly quickly. I can't wait to play this again and if I'd bought it last year, it would definitely be in my top 5 of 2011. Ah well. Great start to the new year....

In the Shadow of the Emperor, Rio Grande Games

Wasn't playing this one but it's on my list of must-try's.  The other table was VERY quiet throughout which goes with what I've heard - a very dry, calculational experience.


  1. Quebec is one game I've had absolutely no interest in getting, but I've been curious how it gets rated. I think the artwork turned me off initially. The bright colours don't work for me. Can you compare Quebec to other games you've played?

    1. Huh, it's a tough one. It's kind of a dense worker-placement, area majority mashup where you need to get your opponents to help you. Someone at our table compared it a bit to Blue Moon City in the cooperative reward aspect. But it's way heavier than that although turns play extremely quickly once people get the hang of things. I thought it was quite a lot of fun and really unique. It doesn't really work like any games out there that I've played which is maybe why I enjoyed it so much.

  2. Thanks. I'm looking into this one.
